Layout and amenities are typical Courtyard. Pleasant staff. Tiny pool with fire pit area. Adjacent to shopping area with three restaurants and a Safeway. Near Highway 101, but far enough away to be free of traffic noise. Nice community and neighborhood. King room was nicely furnished, but dated (wall-mounted air conditioning, bath-shower combo with curtain). I'd likely stay here again... More

Stayed here for 5 nights while working at the race track. The room held up well during a 6.0 earthquake. No damage from what I can tell although the guy in the room above me must have fell out of bed. I could hear a big bang and foot steps heading to the door! The bed was nice and it... More

If you didn't know where this place is, you might have a hard time finding it. Off the freeway and away from the frontage road, this Courtyard is a soothing place to stay. Great front office staff, beautifully appointed rooms and baths (there was a hidden fridge in a cabinet - yay), quiet and elegant, this is a great property.... More

My husband and I planned to add on a couple of days to a conference in San Francisco. Stayed two nights at this hotel. The area is more bedroom community than destination site and we had to drive about an hour but it fit our needs to a T. Hot tub and pool were nice, guest laundry small but they... More

We've stayed here several times over the past few years and our latest visit was, if anything, better than before. Definitely recommend, even though I think their prices have gone up a bit. Note for the future, a commuter train line is set to start running right next to the hotel property in 2015. Could be noisy.

We had a free Marriott night coming, and decided to give this property a try. Good choice on our part. It is a little "off the beaten path" -- set back far enough from freeway and main roads to be QUIET. I actually slept well, which usually never happens on a 1-night trip and/or the 1st night out. Everything looked... More

My wife and I were on a three week road trip starting in Southern California up to Portland Oregon, and then down the coast back home over a three week time frame. Mainly we stayed at another chain hotel for the entire trip, but it was not available in Novato, so we chose the Courtyard. I get a sizable corporate... More

This is not the fanciest hotel, sleeping rooms are just OK, lobby is kind of nice, looks recently renovated and is modern and bright. Amenities are minimal. What really made our stay though was the staff...consistently friendly on every level. It is also nicely situated, with a Safeway just behind it.

This hotel is perfectly located to go north or northeast into Sonoma County or south into San Francisco or Berkeley areas. Being on the run all day, it was wonderful returning to this hotel. There are restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store. The small refrigerator was perfect for snacks and beverages we wanted cooled. The small... More

A very pleasant experience at this Courtyard. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. The property is well maintained and immaculately clean. I recommend it highly and will be staying there again on my next visit to the Bay area.
